Team Stories

The Warriors varsity volleyball team won for the fifth time in the last six matches with a 3-0 sweep of the Carolina Mustangs home-schooled team Tuesday at home. St. David’s battled for a 25-23, 25-23, 29-27 victory in a match that featured multiple lead changes in all three sets. “It was as close as it possibly could be with us still winning,” said coach Romel Lightbourn, whose team is now 8-4. “They are a good team that always plays scrappy defense, so we knew we had to run our offense better and finish the play. We did that just enough to win.” 

The varsity volleyball Warriors earned a hard-fought 3-0 sweep of St. Mary’s Thursday at home. St. David’s trailed most of the first set, but won 25-23, took the second set 25-21, then completed the match with a 25-17 victory. “We got rolling in the middle of the match,” said coach Romel Lightbourn. “We need to be ready from the start and play hard throughout. We have a chance to have a really good season, but we need to be more consistent.” St. David’s is 7-4 and hosts the Carolina Mustangs Tuesday. 

The varsity volleyball Warriors beat Ravenscroft for the first time in four years, 3-0, Friday at home. St. David’s swept the match 25-15, 25-16 and 25-21 behind a strong first set and solid play in all phases. “Our matches with them have usually gone to five sets,” said coach Romel Lightbourn, whose team is 5-3. “We’ve been close, but tonight we played with more energy, executed what we work on in practice and stayed focused. This is the way we are capable of playing every match, but we need to bring it against everybody, not just Ravenscroft.” St. David’s is at Village Christian in Fayetteville Tuesday. 

The varsity Warriors defeated Fayetteville Academy, 3-0, Wednesday in Fayetteville. St. David’s bounced back from Tuesday’s home loss to Cary Academy with a dominant 25-9, 25-3, 25-7 victory. “I’m pleased with the way we responded,” said coach Romel Lightbourn, whose team is 4-3. “We adjusted our defense and focused heavily on transition footwork. We had no chance to practice, so I thought we executed pretty well.” Sarah Dean Barbour served nine straight points in the first set and Vivian Edwards reeled off 15 straight in the second. The JV Warriors also prevailed over FA, 25-6 and 25-15 to go to 2-0. Both teams host Ravenscroft Friday beginning at 4:15 p.m.

The Warriors varsity volleyball team dropped a hard-fought 3-2 decision to Cary Academy in the home opener Tuesday. St. David’s (3-3) lost the first set, then battled back for a 2-1 lead with 25-20, 25-19 victories. The Chargers rallied for a 25-21 fourth set win, then took the tiebreaker, 16-14. “We didn’t earn enough points,” said coach Romel Lightbourn. “We scored off their mistakes, but couldn’t get enough points from our offense. We need to play better defense and mentally prepare to be ready to play from the first point.” St. David’s is back in action Wednesday at Fayetteville Academy. 

The varsity volleyball Warriors went 3-2 at the Cougar Classic hosted by Calvary Day School in Winston-Salem over the weekend. St. David’s went 3-1 in pool play with 2-0 victories over Gaston Day, Coastal Christian and Calvary Day School, who played in the 2A state tournament last year and  a loss (2-0) to last year's 3A runner-up High Point Christian. The Warriors lost to Southlake Christian of Charlotte, 2-0 in Saturday’s semi-finals. “I'm very pleased and excited about the way we played this weekend” said coach Romel Lightbourn. "We've accomplished a lot in a short period of time and this weekend against this kind of competition helped us learn what we need to do to continue to improve. Based on our play this weekend, I am excited about the season."
